Back square

The daily "trailer" for the BBC2 Newsnight drops into Malcolm's in-box each evening. There is usually a "funny", so
Today's Quote for the Day: "In the event of fire, open a window and announce your presence in a seemly manner" - notice in a Copenhagen hotel.
Ho! Ho! or something similar.

However it reminds Malcolm that, in the early 6os, Trinity College, Dublin, decided to review the fire precautions.

Probably for the first time since 1592.

This resulted in a notice being posted in the famous 40 Trinity College*:
In case of fire, shout "Fire!"
Well, one would, wouldn't one?

*40 Trinity College? In Back Square? Used to be the Department of Classics? And the Department of Statistics?

Still not got it? Ah, then you haven't met Sebastian Dangerfield! Sphere: Related Content
